“KINKY BOOTS” LOTTERY GOES DIGITAL!
NEW ONLINE TICKET DRAWING TO BEGIN MONDAY, JULY 13
New York, NY (July 6, 2015) – Producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig announced today that Kinky Boots has implemented a new digital lottery, allowing potential audience members to purchase $37 day-of tickets from anywhere. This new digital lottery will vastly increase the number of possible entrants by making tickets exponentially more accessible, allowing for a wider reach of potential audience members. Beginning Monday, July 13, a digital ticket lottery will replace the previous lottery policy, in which entries were accepted outside of the Al Hirschfeld Theatre box office (302 West 45th Street) two hours prior to curtain time. See below for complete rules and regulations.
The complete rules and regulations for the new digital lottery policy are as follows:
A limited number of tickets for each performance will be sold via lottery.
Entries will be accepted online (lottery.kinkybootsthemusical.com) beginning at the curtain time of the previous performance up to 3.5 hours prior to curtain of the desired performance.
Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner – entries will be checked for duplicates.
Three hours prior to the performance time, names will be chosen at random for a limited number of tickets priced at $37.00 each, and entrants will be notified via email.
Winners may pick up and pay for their tickets any time between the drawing and 30 minutes prior to the curtain time.
Tickets are subject to availability.
Tickets may be partial view.
Standard lottery at the box office of the Hirschfeld Theatre remains in effect through Saturday, July 11.
